How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff

Edmond and piper and isaac and osbert, and jet and gin the black and white dogs, and a bunch of cats all went into the kitchen first and sat down at a wooden table and someone made cups of tea and then they all stared at me like i was something interesting theyd ordered from a zoo and asked me lots of questions in a much more polite way than would ever happen in new york, where kids would pretty much wait for some grown-up to come in all fake-cheerful and put cookies on a plate and make you say your names. I fell asleep in the jeep because it was a long way to get to their house and watching the highway go by always makes me want to close my eyes. But they keep sheep and goats and cats and dogs and chickens for decoration said osbert in a slightly sneery way and im getting the feeling about him that hes the one cousin who reminds me of people i knew in new york city.

After a while i was feeling woozy and thought boy, could i ever use a drink of freezing water to clear my head, and when i looked up edmond was standing there holding one hand out and in it was a glass of water with ice cubes, and all the time looking at me with his almost smiling look and though i didnt think much about this at the time, i noticed isaac looking at edmond in a funny way. But mostly he just smiled and half closed his eyes and looked more like wise dog than ever and i thought to myself if this kid turns out to be thirty-five i wont be a bit surprised. What its like to work on a presidential campaign and.

And then he looked at me again in his funny doggy way, and he said youll get used to it. The stairs all creak and there are no curtains on any of the windows and all the main rooms seem huge after what im used to and theyre scattered with big old comfortable furniture and paintings and books and huge fireplaces you can walk into and animals posing around the place to make it look even more authentic oldy worldy. According to my best friend leah, d the d would have liked to poison me slowly till i turned black and swelled up like a pig and died in agony but i guess that plan flopped when i refused to eat anything and in the end she got me sent off to live with a bunch of cousins id never met a few thousand miles away while she and dad and the devils spawn went on their merry way. Before i could work myself up into a full-blown attack of hyperventilating, i heard a tiny noise at the door and there was piper again, looking in, and when she saw i was awake she gave a little happy squeak like a mouse-cheer and asked did i want a cup of tea? Ok, i said, and then thank you, remembering to be polite, and i smiled at her because i still liked her from yesterday.

    How I Live Now, Meg Rosoff

    After a while i was feeling woozy and thought boy, could i ever use a drink of freezing water to clear my head, and when i looked up edmond was standing there holding one hand out and in it was a glass of water with ice cubes, and all the time looking at me with his almost smiling look and though i didnt think much about this at the time, i noticed isaac looking at edmond in a funny way. That rare, rare thing, a first novel with a sustained, magical and utterly faultless voice. After five pages, i knew she could persuade me to believe anything.

    Daisy, i corrected her, and she nodded in a solemn kind of way that made me feel sure shed remember. And when i woke up i thought how strange it was to be lying in someone elses bed thousands of miles from home surrounded by grayish light and a weird kind of quiet that you never get in new york city where the traffic keeps you company in a constant buzzy way day and night. She looked disappointed, but only for a second, and really i was feeling so much more tired than polite that i hardly cared.

    The stairs all creak and there are no curtains on any of the windows and all the main rooms seem huge after what im used to and theyre scattered with big old comfortable furniture and paintings and books and huge fireplaces you can walk into and animals posing around the place to make it look even more authentic oldy worldy. But then i went over to the window and looked out and there was the slightest bit of pink light over to one side where the sun must have just started coming up and a totally quiet gray mist hung over the barn and the gardens and the fields and everything was perfectly still and beautiful and i stared and stared expecting to see a deer or maybe a unicorn trotting home after a hard night but i didnt see anything except some birds. . I pulled the black sheep blanket over my head and closed my eyes and for no good reason i could think of, i felt like id belonged to this house for centuries but that could have been wishful thinking.
